Parmesan & Thyme Savoury Scones

These cheesy parmesan and thyme scones recipes are perfect for breakfast, brunch or as a side dish.


  • oven
  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper


  • 2½ cups (625 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp (20 mL) baking powder
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) finely chopped fresh thyme
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) each salt and freshly cracked pepper
  • ½ cup (125 mL) cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup (250 mL) 2% milk
  • ⅓ cup (75 mL) shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat over to 400°F (200°C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Stir together flour, baking powder, thyme, salt and pepper; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1 cup (250 mL) milk. Sprinkle evenly with 1/4 cup (60 mL) of the Parmesan cheese.
  2. Transfer mixture to lightly floured surface. Without overworking, knead gently until dough just comes together; pat into 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick rectangle. Using 3-inch (7.5 cm) cutter, cut into 6 rounds, rerolling scraps to make 2 more scones.
  3. Brush each scone lightly with milk; sprinkle tops with remaining cheese. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm or at room temperature.
